Mangaluru, May 14: Deputy commissioner (DC) Dr Rajendra KV inaugurated a 18-bed Covid care center, exclusively for police personnel and for their family members in the now vacant student ladies hostel near St Aloysius Gonzaga School, here on Friday May 14.

Appreciating the initiative, the DC said, "The police personnel are working as frontline Covid warriors while effectively implementing the Covid-19 guidelines. Hence, to boost their morale, this initiative have been taken by the police commissioner."

He also lauded St Aloysius Education Institutions for coming forward and providing the building for the purpose. "It is really a commendable work done by St Aloysius Institutions for the society,” he said adding that the police department play a major role in implementing the orders of the district administration and the state government.

“The district administration has already set up three Covid care centers for the frontline Covid workers and provided all the vital facilities required. The district administration is also ready to provide more facilities if required,” he said.

Police commissioner N Shashi Kumar said, "As police staff are frontline workers, we decided to set this center up which has 18 beds. As much as 95% of the police staff have received Covid-19 vaccines. Last year, out of 1,700 police personnel under the commissionerate, 333 personnel tested corona-positive. In the second wave, 62 personnel have tested positive of which 46 patients are under home isolation. If the police department requires additional beds, the Covid care center at NITK will be utilised."

St Aloysius ITI director Fr Cyril D’Mello SJ said, “During the pandemic, the institution is already providing food kits and medical assistance to the needy. The institution is ready to provide any kind of facilities to the police department, as they are working as frontline warriors and rendering their service to the society.”

DCPs Hariram Shankar and Vinay Gaonkar, St Aloysius College principal Fr Praveen Martis SJ, SACAA president Steven Pinto, St Aloysius PU College principal Fr Clifford Sequeira SJ, registrar/controller of examination St Aloysius College Alwyn D’Sa were present.
